Product Description

Review

"Stanovich follows up his fascinating System 1/System 2 distinction with powerful evidence on rationality, cognitive processing, and the role of individual differences. This powerful new book is critical reading for any scholar interested in the current state of dual process models. " --Max H. Bazerman, Straus Professor, Harvard Business School and co-author, Judgment and Managerial Decision Making and Negotiation Genius, Co-author, Judgment and Managerial Decision Making and Negotiation Genius "In this book Stanovich shows unrivalled mastery of the psychological literatures on thinking, reasoning and decision making. Developing his dual process approach into a tripartite theory of the mind, he differentiates a number of distinct ways in which people can fail to solve judgment and reasoning tasks, several of which are unrelated to conventional measures of intelligence. This work has profound social as well as scientific implications for the interpretation of intelligence tests and the wider debate about human rationality. Strongly recommend reading for cognitive scientists, educators and test-designers alike. " --Jonathan St B T Evans, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Emeritus, School of Psychology University of Plymouth "Like Keith Stanovich's other work, Rationality and the Reflective Mind is comprehensive, judicious, and insightful. Readers will learn what the fuss about rationality is, why it matters, and how to follow the action as the science unfolds. If Stanovich has his way, readers will witness, and perhaps join, the integration of previously, and sometimes defiantly, isolated research programs." ----Baruch Fischhoff, Howard Heinz University Professor, Department of Social and Decision Sciences and Department of Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University

The best and most practical overview of the cognitive science of rational judgment and decision-making yet published. - Luke Muehlhauser

An excellent book, by an excellent author, with many great insights into the mind in this book.. This book must be read by any person who takes the psychology of reasoning seriously, and also for anyone who doesn't, for it is incredible all the same.

This is the first of Stanovich's books I've read*. I found that it was heavier reading than some other comparable texts, but gave penetrating insights into the Great Rationality Debate, it's background and the definitions of Meliorist and Panglossian positions.

I used this as a reference for an MBA dissertation, it was the most informative text I came across for this purpose when read amongst Kahneman, Bazerman etc. and really opened the concepts up for me, as well as supporting a greater degree of analysis than was required for my subject.

*I didn't finish the book completely because everything I needed was in the first few Chapters, though the Appendices has an excellent reference table listing the range of heuristics and biases and their protagonists.

I'd expect any self-respecting Psychologist to have this book on their shelf.
